Douglas Davis '12, the leading scorer in the past 47 years of Princeton men's basketball, will begin his professional career in the German Bundesliga.

The Walter Tigers Tubingen announced Davis's signing on July 30, making him the third member of the 2011 Ivy League championship team to play professionally in Europe after Dan Mavraides '11 (Greece) and Kareem Maddox '11 (Netherlands).

Davis finished his career with 1,550 points, second all-time only to Bill Bradley '65 (2,503). A four-year starter, Davis helped resurrect a team that finished 6-23 the year before his arrival to one that made postseason appearances in each of his last three seasons. 

Of course, the biggest single-moment memory most Tiger fans will have of Davis is the buzzer-beating shot he made in the 2011 Ivy League playoff game at Yale, which lifted Princeton over Harvard 63-62 and into the NCAA Tournament.

Davis's new team is based in Tubingen, Germany, which is about 25 miles south of Stuttgart in southwestern Germany. The Walter Tigers are one of the 18 teams in the Bundesliga, Germany's top league.
